  • EGFR mutation status was determined as described in the Materials and Methods; the absence or presence of the drug-resistance EGFRT790M mutation is indicated by a Y (yes) or N (no). For patient no. 10, two individual samples (10a and 10b) were examined. For MET fold change, values are given relative to MTHFR as assessed by qPCR, described in the Materials and Methods, with DNA from a reference sample (Ref.) and H820 cells included in each set. Samples with MET amplification are in boldface. None of the seven samples for which only aCGH was performed showed MET amplification [″not amplified (amp.) by aCGH″]. Samples for which both qPCR and aCGH were performed are marked with an asterisk. Tumor samples 6, 10a, and 10b all showed focal MET amplification by aCGH (see SI Fig. 4) and by qPCR. Tumor no. 6 also displayed MET amplification by FISH (see text and SI Fig. 5). F.C., fold change; NA, not applicable; Del, deletion; ins; insertion; erl., erlotinib; gef., gefitinib. Time in months patient was on kinase inhibitor treatment when re-biopsy was performed.
